Amputee Peer Mentor Program: Established in 1980, the AMP-Peer Program are a group of volunteers at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. Amp-Peer is a free service that gives individuals with amputations the opportunity to talk with one another. The Peers share their experiences, knowledge, provide emotional support and practical information on everyday concerns. They are living proof that individuals with amputations can recover and continue to have active lives.
